According to Wikipedia, these are abjads:

أبجدية عربية
אלפבית עברי

These are abugidas:
देवनागरी
อักษรไทย
বাংলা লিপি
ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಕ್ಷರಮಾಲೆ
മലയാളം അക്ഷരമാല
தமிழ் அரிச்சுவடி

And these are alphabets:
кириллический алфавит
ქართული ანბანი
Ελληνικό αλφάβητο

All have their own entry in Wikipedia in their own script. Interestingly only the two abjads are written right-to-left.
